We recently teamed up with Brandwatch and Falcon to analyze emotions and emojis over the first half of 2021.
Part of our analysis included understanding the ways in which we react to content on Facebook.
With 1.6bn Facebook reactions to 540 million posts, we analyzed a selection of countries across the globe, based on five types of reactions:
We split this data up by positive (Love, Wow, Haha) and negative (Sad, Angry) reactions.
I know, I know – it’s not as simple as that. Context is everything when it comes to emoji usage!
But we were still interested to see the overarching sentiment by country.
While Singaporeans were more likely to react with Love, Wow, or Haha – Germany was most likely to react to content shared on Facebook in anger or with a sad emoji.
In fact, diving deeper into the data, Germany was twice as likely to use the anger reaction than the UK, Singapore, and Australia.
On the other hand, the country that was least afraid to show its loving side was the UK.
Understanding how different countries react online is a savvy way to inform your global content marketing efforts.
